pink contam!
    #3317513 - 11/04/04 12:04 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

well, I lost 6 jars to contamination, and now 2 of my recently rejuivenated cakes (dunking is a LIFE SAVER, thanks guys!) had pink spots on them. They don't really look like the pictures of lipstick or bread mold, but when I cut one open it smelled to high heaven and bothered my nose.

It concerns me that I my sinuses felt off minutes after their disposal...

anyway, here are some pics - anybody seen this before?








this is the inside of it cut open

should I clean out the whole tank after this?

oh I certainly did, I just wonder how crazy I should go with cleaning the tank/my house for the fungus' and my kitties sake.

Really curious as to what it could be though...

Hard to tell what it is, but never, i mean NEVER sniff cakes if they have some kind of discoloration, besides, pink contams can be very dangerous. Meningitis is associated with a contam having this color.
Toss those cakes very carefully and clean the WHOLE grow room with a bleach solution!
Visit you doctor if you are having any health issue related to this incident !

um......well, the grow room is a closet off my bedroom whose door does not close, and the room has a computer, tv, bed, etc.....

I can't fathom how I would clean the whole room with a bleach solution...?

I've seen that before but it was a bit more pinker, like richer in color. Yeah you shouldn't sniff bad cakes, that'll never lead to anything to great. Ck out the contam. forum, it helped me out a bit and i haven't had a contam. since. Gl and stay safe
